Mosiah 27: The Repentance of Alma the Younger - Milestones

Another classic narrative from the Book of Mormon. Again, two versions, both deversed, the first beginning at Mosiah 27:8, the second beginning at Mosiah 27:1. In the second version, the inciting incident is a little sloshy, coming six lines late, but the rest of the milestones are about spot on and make good sense.
